This studio capitalises on the skills and processes gained in the first semester studio to engage with increasingly complex programmatic and contextual issues within the built environment. Fundamental modes of representation in a variety of media will be deployed as a means to comprehend and articulate architecture from multiple integrated perspectives. Designing a small building will be the final project yet based on a series of introductory exercises that will engage with concepts of iteration in a range of scales and media. Students will continue to learn new software and other related techniques while also developing their familiarity with the technical skills necessary to realise a final design presentation including various media. The design projects will explore the necessity of experimentation as a means to communicate fundamental ideas about space, structure and form.
